Food in the city - As far food is concerned, this city has a lot to offer. Muslim food is also available in plenty over here. Even the "nan" (bread) can be found with great ease. Meat is sold separately for Muslims and non-Muslims. Even you have a choice to buy live animal and make it slaughter. A lot of animals are available in the market. To name a few, lamb, cow, chicken, rabbit etc. Vegetables and fruits are presented at very cheap rates and superb quality. All seasonal vegetables and fruits can be found here or should we say, even more. These can be found easily in local green grocery markets or from hawkers. Foreign students had developed liaison with a cafe in the campus. The lady over here prepares a menu according to the students’ wishes and serves them the whole month with very nominal charges. To have an idea of charges for eating in this cafe 2 times a day, one can well imagine that it is worth nearly half the amount eating out. It is not said here that if you eat out, it will be expensive. This city is full of small restaurants and cafes. Any time you can go out and have anything you want from "Seekh tikka", "Chapain", fried fish to all sort of Chinese dishes. And you will not believe it that eating out is not as expensive as we think, although the choice of restaurants does matter.

Shopping in the city - Shopping in the city is charming, amusing and worth your money. A whole range of shops from very small, community based one, to a lot of super stores and super markets. You can buy anything you think of from these stores and surprisingly at very meager amount. All sort of clothing, for girls and boys, can be found with ease and in good rates.
